Receiving Investigator Heong Gyu Tae's latest report, and recalling a cryptic instruction from his late father, King Hwon becomes sorrowfully aware of his sister's involvement in cursing Yeon Wu. Confronting Min Hwa during a visit to announce her pregnancy, the depth of her betrayal tears the King in two over wanting retribution and protecting family. It galvanizes him to start putting everything in its proper place, beginning with a choice to the Queen Dowager: retirement from politics or a court trial. Rightfully alarmed, the ministers decide to strike and suss out Prince Yang Myeong Gun's interest in being made king. Meanwhile, the introduction of a new girl at court makes Queen Yun Bo Gyeong keenly aware of her father's capacity to dispose of her use in an instant. Written by statmanjeff
